This quilt was made as a nod to the continued need for EPA and environmental protection. Clean air, water, and land is important to human, wildlife, and plant health. The scene is mostly pristine with the exception of the deformed turtle in the foreground. The background is strip pieced. I printed the canoe, the birds, the turtle, and the sign onto fabric using my home printer. The waves are made from plastic bag strips. I hand sewed beads to look like small pebbles. The piece measures 21.25 in X 21.5 in. Like the one last week I submitted it to Threads of Resistance and hope it will become part of their exhibit (http://threadsofresistance.blogspot.com/).
